Planning for Divorce Can Be One of the Most Critical Moments in a Person’s Life

After dealing with all the emotional issues surrounding divorce the next step is to make sure you have your finances in order.

As a Certified Financial Planner™ specializing in divorce matters, I can help you sort through the unique financial circumstances that comes with a divorce.

I can help you sort through your finances and help you make clear and concise decisions to support and complement the legal process, but cannot replace the necessity for legal advice.

My training and practice as a Certified Financial Planner™, ongoing training in specific areas of divorce financial analysis, mastery of specialized planning tools, understanding of local divorce laws, and training in areas such as mediation and collaborative divorce techniques qualify me to add a layer of financial expertise to help clients better understand the financial ramifications of a settlement. I have personally experienced the mediation process and have trained in collaborative law which I feel is the wave of the future in divorce settlements.
